PURPOSE Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is associated with very poor prognosis. The aims of this study are (a) to prospectively identify differential gene expression patterns associated with IBC and (b) to confirm these pathways using tissue arrays. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN For gene expression analysis, IBC (n=14) was clinically defined as rapid-onset cancer(More)
Cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD) is a dominantly inherited skeletal malformation syndrome with high penetrance and variable expressivity. It is caused by loss of function mutations in the RUNX2 gene that encodes for a transcription factor essential for osteoblast differentiation and chondrocyte maturation. To identify new pathogenic mutations associated with(More)
Tricho-rhino-phalangeal syndrome (TRPS) is an autosomal dominant craniofacial and skeletal dysplasia that is caused by mutations involving the TRPS1 gene. Patients with TRPS have short stature, hip abnormalities, cone-shaped epiphyses and premature closure of growth plates reflecting defects in endochondral ossification. The TRPS1 gene encodes for the(More)
Previously, we identified an amplified gene in a stomach cancer cell line, KATO-III, and designated it K-sam. This gene was later found to be identical with a gene for a receptor tyrosine kinase, bek/FGFR2. One of the characteristics of the K.sam gene is structural diversity of its transcripts; K-sam complementary DNA (cDNA) cloned from human brain(More)
